Excellent take Althea and I agree with you...Kesey was no sweetheart - It was more like "come with me and see if you can handle it"... The movie was very specific about how Kesey wanted to always be calling the shots, and especially with the women. He wanted who he wanted. They were nuts and fun loving and easy to love, but at the same time you could never trust a Prankster. The one interview with Kesey about that statement, "Never Trust a Prankster" he says in no uncertain terms that you could never trust him because he will always end up lying to you(because he's a prankster). Thats kinda when i was like - This guy acts like an asshole, not exactly an overly nice guy..I am gonna give that rap you mentioned a listen. I remeber thinking the same thing when I listened to all of the acid test reels..The truth is, I never make it throught those raps all the way - ever.
